You shouldn’t ever have to know suffering, at the hand, of another

by Christos Polydorou

img_20170105_175827_573My faith
is a reason for someone to kill me.
My sexuality
is a reason for someone to kill me.
My brains
is a reason for someone to kill me.
My looks
is a reason for someone to kill me.
My defense
is a reason for someone to kill me
My love
is a reason for someone to kill me.
 
I don’t
want to live
in such a world
anymore. But I neither
 
want to
leave it
anymore. We are all
going to
have to
 
change it. You, mine
enemy,
are going to have
to
 
change.
